In this webinar, Senior Consultant Hal Trent of Comtech Services , Applications Engineer Bill Gamboa of Vasont Systems and Senior Consultant Dawn Stevens of Comtech Services discuss how to publish DITA 1.2 Learning and Training content to a Learning Management System.

Hal, Bill and Dawn explain how the DITA 1.2 learning and training specialization content are:

  • mapped to SCORM-compliant output
  • how an organization can leverage their current learning and training content with DITA-created learning and training content
  • published using the DITA-OT and then integrated into a SCORM compliant LMS (Moodle will be used for demonstration purposes)
  • shared between the technical documentation and learning and training departments to maximize content reuse
  • demonstrated using sample medical device content
